Lessons from a baby giraffe

I wonder if my students – 15-18 year olds – will find this as wondrous as I?

They didn’t know she was pregnant until they saw some hooves poking through.
It’s amazing, the things that go on and we don’t even know they are happening.

The mother licks the baby clean, caring for it, making sure it is healthy, then kicks it to help make it strong so it can survive.
Love isn’t all softness and comfort.

Enjoy.
